A great new web archive has been put up: The BBC Computer Literacy Project 1980-1989.
In the 1980s, the BBC explored the world of computing in The Computer Literacy Project. They commissioned a home computer (the BBC Micro) and taught viewers how to program.
The Computer Literacy Project chronicled a decade of information technology and was a milestone in the history of computing in Britain, helping to inspire a generation of coders.
This new site contains all 146 of the original Computer Literacy Project programs plus 121 related programs, broken down into 2,509 categorised, searchable clips.
- Watch any of the 267 programs
- Explore 2,509 program clips by topic or text search
- Find out how the BBC Computer Literacy Project came about
- Run 166 BBC Micro programs that were used on-screen in your browser
See the whole thing on the new website.
